[Tweeters] trying a new camera

Hello Tweeters,

On our recent birding trip to Trinidad I noticed that other
trip participants were getting wonderful bird photos using newer model zoom
cameras. I decided it was time to upgrade and recently bought a Panasonic
Lumix DMC-FZ200. This camera has a zoom of 25 to 600 mm equivalent. Many
of you may already have cameras like this, and this is yesterday's news, but
I just thought I'd share a few photos from my last two weekends in eastern
Washington. The pretty terrible photo of the Sage Grouse lek is taken from
about 1/3 mile away. I was amazed I'd got a photo at all. The rest are
some of the best bird pictures I've ever been able to take!


The last time I did this, some Tweeters could access the
photos with no difficulty, others couldn't. If you have difficulty, please
let me know and I will send you the link directly.

Happy birding, Charlotte Byers, Seattle
